The management of Chrisland Schools, Lagos State, has reacted to the alleged rape saga of a 10-year-old pupil of the school during a trip to Dubai.
Pupils from the private school were in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to participate in the World School Games between March 10 and 13, 2022.
According to the viral video, posted on the Instagram page of a music executive, Ubi Franklin, the students were involved in an amorous act.
But the mother in her reaction to the video alleged that her daughter was assaulted while some students filmed the incident and posted it online.
Many internet users, who watched the video, yesterday, blamed the woman and parents of other students for failing in their duty to bring up godly children.
The girl’s mother alleged that the school tried to cover up the incident.
She claimed that the school threatened to kill her daughter if she ever spoke about the incident.
She said: “A parent called me and said that she needed to see me urgently. I went to her house and she told me that something had been trending in my child’s school and she believes I was not aware. The woman showed me the video and told me that all the parents are aware. Immediately I informed my husband”.
The mother of the pupil further stated that when the school was confronted about the incident, they went ahead to suspend her daughter.
In a letter purportedly signed by its Head Teacher, G. I. Azike, the school, said it discovered that their daughter was involved in improper behaviour during the recently concluded World School Games in Dubai.
The letter read: “With a few of her counterparts, she willfully participated in a game they called ‘Truth or Dare’, a game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out the immoral act after the lights out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behaviour and misconduct.
“ A full-scale investigation has been done and the parents of all the culpable learners have been duly notified of the necessary punishment meted out on the learners. The parents gave their full cooperation realising the need to work with the school so that the learners can be corrected and be of expected proper behaviour henceforth.
“However, in the course of the school’s efforts to see how best we can help the student who was a major participant in the whole incident, every effort to inform you as her parent about the incident and ensure that this improper behaviour is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such. Consequently, the girl is hereby placed on indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counselled and rehabilitated.
The school authorities denied claims that it conducted a pregnancy test on the girl. According to the school, only a COVID-19 test was conducted on all the students who embarked on the trip to Dubai.
The school also said out of the 77 students who represented the school at the event, only six were involved in the misconduct. It said they were involved in a Truth or Dare game which led to the condemnable act.
